9to5Google’s Take

I wasn’t personally too happy with the Fossil Gen 6 once I spent a while with it final 12 months. Frankly, the battery life was tough, and nearly unusable even in my less-demanding use circumstances.

However I can’t assist however have an interest on this new “Enterprise Version.” It absolutely has the identical issues as the usual mannequin – the only real evaluation on Fossil’s web site even says the battery couldn’t final a full day – however the design is simply top-notch. It jogs my memory of 2018’s Fossil Q Explorist HR, which to today stays one in all my favourite smartwatch designs up to now.
